Highlights

 
  • Choose from three options and spend one day exploring Sierra de Gredos.

  • Discover beautiful spots and contemplate incredible views in the range.

  • Spend the night in the lovely Hostal Almanzor in Navarredonda de Gredos.

 

On this hiking program, I offer you three different options to enjoy Sierra de Gredos. The starting point of the first two options is Alto del Durano, which lies on kilometer 6 of the road to La Plataforma. For the third option, we’ll start directly on La Plataforma.

The first alternative will take us on an easygoing hike to Puerto del Peón, from where we’ll get to see fantastic views of Los Galayos. Then, we’ll ascend to the Peñón del Mediodía peak at 2,219 meters and continue to Mojinete. From there, we’ll find another amazing viewpoint in the range and we’ll descend through Collado del Charco to return to the starting point.

For the second option, we’ll start on the same path but head in the direction of Hoya del Cura to reach Cerro del Camocho (1,826 meters) and continue to La Mira (2,343 meters), one of the highest peaks in the range. We’ll find old mountain refuges on the way and get to see fantastic views from the top. Then, we’ll take go down La Lanchosa and head back to the start.

As for the third option, we’ll go through an old trail used by farmers to Puerto de Candeleda and discover the ruins of El Refugio del Rey. Our ascent will continue to the Morezón peak at 2,389 meters above sea level, which will provide us with stunning views of Circo de Gredos. Finally, we’ll go down Laguna Grande and return.

Please, keep in mind that these hikes have a length of around 13-16 kilometers and an elevation gain of 700-900 meters. Therefore, it’s important to have a very good level of fitness for this program. As for the accommodation, we’ll spend the night after the hike in Hostal Almanzor, in the municipality of Navarredonda de Gredos.

So, do you find this adventure attractive? Then choose your favorite option and come explore the best spots in Sierra de Gredos with me. All you have to do is send the request to make your reservation and I will happily guide you!

I also offer a 2-day trek in the region with an overnight at Refugio Laguna!

About the Guide

 
 

I am the founder of Enjoy Gredos and a UIMLA-certified mountain leader affiliated to the AEGM (Spanish Mountain Guide Association). Sierra de Gredos is my home, I know its paths and trails like the back of my hand but its beauty never ceases to amaze me.

My passion for the mountains has taken me all over Spain, including the Pyrenees, Picos de Europa, Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Guardarrama, and to some of the Earth's major mountain ranges, including the Alps and the Himalayas. But I always come back to my beloved Gredos! Join me and discover this beautiful region with me.
